Hi, my name is Janey, I'm new here, and I'm from England - I see there are other Brits on here as well!
On December 1st I'm going in for three level disc replacement, which I'm told is a huge and risky operation. The NHS won't fund it as they see it as too risky and with little chance of helping me improve, but like most people on here I feel I have no choice. Fusion isn't recommended, and the only other choice is to do nothing - which really isn't an option. I've tried all the other alternatives, following a failed microdiscectomy over four years ago.
I'd love to hear from anyone who has had two or three level disc replacement to find out how they got on!
